In January of 2007, Donald Trump was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. At that time, he was best known for his show, “The Apprentice” which had its debut in 2004. However, as everyone in the known universe is aware, Trump is now running for president, and a great many of them are unhappy about it.
So unhappy, in fact, that the Hollywood Historic Trust is rumored to be considering removing Trump’s star from the iconic tourist attraction altogether. Apparently, the sidewalk star has become a magnet for graffiti, trash and excrement.

No matter what your feelings about Donald Trump, I hope you would agree this sort of display is disgraceful. Whatever happened to our “civil society?” (I know, that’s a question which will take too long to answer).
Nonetheless it’s quite amazing that the mere name “Donald Trump” continues to strike fear and loathing in the hearts of so many. We reported here about students being terrified by his name written in chalk on the campus sidewalks of Emory University.
However, at least for the time being, Donald Trump continues to lead the delegate count for the GOP nomination, with 736, compared to 463 for Ted Cruz, with 943 delegates still available.
Political scientist Larry Sabato just issued this prediction for the general election showing a complete landslide loss for Trump against Hillary Clinton. If he does become the nominee (if) and Clinton isn’t indicted (if only), it looks like Trump’s oft-repeated phrase of “we don’t win anymore” will be personally prophetic.
